    November's list of the 20 most widespread viruses is marked by the
    appearance of several new variations of the Mimail network worm, most
    notable is I-Worm.Mimail.c which heads the chart with 37.7% of all
    registered incidences. Six new modifications of Mimail made the top
    twenty in November, and altogether accounted for nearly 62%. This
    dominating performance is the result of the code from the Mimail
    family's first variant being published on the Internet.

    For November, Internet worms virtually monopolized the virus statistics,
    allowing Trojan programs a bit more than one half of one percentage
    point, while computer viruses were knocked completely off the list.

    Summary:
    - Making their debuts on the list are: Mimail worm family -c,e,f,g,h,j, and
    Hawawi.g
    - The only virus improving its position is Sober
    - Dropping are Swen, Mimail.a, Sobig.f, Tanatos.b, Lovesan, Agobot, SdBot
    - Returning to the hit parade are: Klez.h, Lentin.g and Lentin.m, Dumaru.a
    and Lovelorn
